This French style pith helmet in white is the original design from Vietnam. A hundred years ago, the French discovered the advantages of the material used to make these hats. The pith is from trees in northern Vietnam and has properties that make it both a good sun and rain shield. These helmets are made in Vietnam using the techniques inherited by the former French occupiers. This style has the biggest brim, about 2 3/4 inches, and is thus arguably the most functional. Hat Sizing Info:The hat is adjustable and fits heads from 55 cm to 58 cm. For bigger heads, please see the Big Head French Pith Helmet.
